Pelicans at La Jolla

We took a trip to San Diego to bring in the New Year – it was freezing! Well, it was west coast freezing not chicago freezing!

It is several years since last visiting this part of Southern California and I enjoyed visiting at a different time of year. We stayed in the gas lamp quarter and walked and walked from there. San Diego is not a very compact city so be prepared to walk. They do have a good public transport system with light rail links taking you most places.

A lone pelican was on the beach at Coronado


….but further up the coast at La Jolla a colony were preening themselves in the morning sun.


Some space has to be shared….


Wishing you peaceful day….

hi! i am Anne (hence vANNilla) - two 'N's autocorrect WILL autocorrect - grrrrrr I can most often be found cooking up a storm in the kitchen,(with my trusty thermomix) behind a camera or a kindle. If you are a traveller/photographer my bog is @vannilla If you have come as a baker my blog is i studied economics in Edinburgh in the early 70's; now retired from a day job, on paper i have plenty of time to explore the blogosphere and enjoy the shared experiences of others. like every other retiree i know we wonder how we fitted in a day job. I split my time between Guernsey,. In the Channel Islands -a 20-odd square mile island with 60thousand+ inhabitants- and Phoenix, Arizona. The mix is perfect- the former is beautiful but attacks of cabin fever are never too far away. Arizona, on the other hand IS king of the open road and has THE biggest bluest sky EVER. my blogs revolve around baking (vannillarock) and photography/travel if you like what you see please do start a conversation :)
